Prince Has Died at the Age of 57

Prince, musical legend and probably the most important thing to come out Minnesota in the history of the state, has passed away at the age of 57. I don’t have a lot to say about the man, others may be able to elaborate more. But at the very least, music the man wrote and performed has been a major part of my life. He was imperfect, but he was extraordinarily talented.

He will be missed.

I wanted to leave you with what he did best — his music. It’s actually pretty difficult to find music by Prince online due to how protective of his art he was though. I did manage to find what is, at least at this moment, a working copy of my favorite Prince song. Frankly, it seemed appropriate.

And, just because this is ostensibly a Nerd and Geek news site, I’ve also embedded a small clip from Batman (1989) which Prince provided quite a bit of music for:

Minnesota’s The Current is streaming some of Prince’s music right now if you need more.

Trae also wrote and drew the now completed webcomic UnCONventional, and produces the podcasts BS-Free Witchcraft, On This Day With Trae, Stormwood & Associates, and The Nerd & Tie Podcast. This leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”
